Get away from the urban bustle at Metropolitan National Park, a sprawling area of green located just ten minutes from the center of the capital.Take a stroll by the canal, and through the tropical forest areas rich in wildlife, including sloths, toucans, and iguanas. Start at the visitor center to learn about the three main trails that cut across the 265 hectare (655 acre) park. The walks vary in difficulty and length, and each offers something different. To plan Panama City vacation without wasting time, ask Inspirock to design an itinerary.
